On campus, staff are busy making physical changes in our buildings.

  • New signage is being placed as visual reminders of campus expectations for all employees, students and guests. 
  • Shared spaces (such as lobbies and waiting areas) and workstations are being rearranged to provide for 6 feet of distancing.
  • Classrooms and labs are being rearranged to adhere to social distancing guidelines. See more lower on this page.
  • Employees are helping to conduct daily disinfection of common areas and high-touch surfaces. 
  • Plexiglass barriers have been installed to provide additional protection.
